The accuracy of any data purporting to show vaccine effectiveness or safety against a disease is critically dependent on the accurate measurement of: people classified as having the disease; vaccination status; death reporting; and the population of vaccinated and unvaccinated (the so called ‘denominators’).

In a previous post we argued that the most reliable long-term measure of Covid-19 vaccine effectiveness/safety is the age adjusted all-cause mortality rate.
The entire Covid-19 pandemic response has been driven by numbers. From the start in March 2020, we have been bombarded with statistics apparently primarily aimed at keeping us as confused as possible and in a sustained state of fear.
